The Common Room / Henshaw of Chichester
« on: Monday 05 January 15 19:21 GMT (UK)  »
Further to a find a couple of years which reunited a pile of military ephemera to a family, I have found another small but poignant piece of history.

Thus I am looking for any descendants of Sarah Henshaw of 6 Shopwyke Rd Chichester. Please PM me as I have found something that may well be lost family history. I will of course ask to see confirmation of relationship. :)

There is a WW2 Naval connection....

Armed Forces / Why have so many old posts appeared??
« on: Saturday 21 January 12 12:36 GMT (UK)  »
Some of you may know that I was in and out of hospital last year...

This means that I missed a number of posts on the "resource" board that required moving (dereliction of duty!)

As I am now almost back to full steam, I have spent the morning digging through the all the posts.

Many may attract further input, so I have moved them all in case they do! ;D ;D

There is a warning on the resource board asking RC'ers not to post requests on there, but sadly many have done. this means that many questions have gone unanswered...Hopefully if this is so, you may now get what you are looking for!
